Media for Father's Day

In May, I mentioned that Toledo Public Library had listed several recommended DVDs for mothers on their blog, and I tacked on some recommended audiobooks and CDs to their list in a News & Views Mother’s Day post. Well, Sunday is Father’s Day, and Toledo did a post on some great (and not so great) fathers in film. Here’s their list of recommended dad DVDs:

Good Dads
Father of the Bride
Mr. Mom
Pursuit of Happyness
To Kill A Mockingbird

Bad Dads
The Shining
Star Wars: A New Hope
Meet The Parents

So, I once again ask, what about CDs and audiobooks? Here are Midwest Tape’s Father’s Day recommendations:

Harry Chapin, Cat’s in the Cradle and Other Hits
Van Morrison, Astral Weeks
Bob Seger, Greatest Hits 2
Steve Miller Band, Let Your Hair Down
Luther Vandross, The Ultimate Luther Vandross
Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis, Here We Go Again
Paul Simon, So Beautiful or So What
Steve Martin, Rare Bird Alert
My Morning Jacket, Circuital
Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More

The Fifth Witness, Michael Connelly
Parents Behaving Badly, Scott Gummer
Life, Keith Richards
The Pale King, David Foster Wallace
A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin
Robopocalypse, Daniel H. Wilson
The 4-Hour Body, Timothy Ferriss
War, Sebastian Junger
The Heart and the Fist, Eric Greitens
Matterhorn, Karl Marlantes

What are your plans for Father’s Day? What CDs, DVDs, or audiobooks do you recommend for dads?
